I have 1 for each of the enviroments i ride in.
gt lts for bouncy off road
fisher set up as my love boat for if I ever do a retro meet
trek 6000 with rockshox for daily commuting detail
specialized road bike for my sat morning team mk rideouts
the heavy cruiser for general posing and mass rides
I want a hybrid to take over from the trek for efficiency's sake and I would love a modern say, gary fisher hifi for bouncy off road duties. neither of which will happen as the gt and trek do their respective roles adequately.

I'm sorry, but that's both ridiculous and completely pointless. It's just spending money for spending money's sake :?

A friend of mine bought French randonneurs, like Alex Singer and Rene Herse, in the 80s when they were out of favor, picked them up for a few hundred dollars each. Now he is sitting on a $200,000 plus collection.

I have decided (for me anyway!) it is when you reach a point that there are too many projects waiting to be built and just not enough time to give them all. So, as hard as it seems, some have to go!, hoping to re-focus then and make some progress. 8)

Other than that, if time and space is not an issue, is there a limit!?

I've decided that it's when you don't have enough time to ride them all and enough time and money to keep them all in top notch riding condition.

Agree, the main reason of my only two bikes at the moment :D

Happy to see others do all the collecting though.

One is sufficient,
Two are too many,
Three are never enough...
